Clear Lake IX

I wanted to finish this drawing that I had originally started a long time ago (see posts on 09 June 2013, 27 May, 18 July and 29 August 2017) while canoeing on Clear Lake.

I started by completing the deciduous trees in the centre area of the drawing and put in the background trees in behind.

Next I added more of the rocks against the shoreline and added the shadows and reflections to each of them until the foreground area was complete.

I then added the background across the distant shore and put in the various pine trees across the island and a few into the background.

Lastly I added a mother duck and her young ducklings following along behind into the water of the lake.

This original 6" x 9" pen and ink drawing when matted and shrink wrapped will be available for $40.00.
